2001 Infiniti QX4 Review
Fun, stylish, powerful vehicle.
Reviewed by Automotive on
One of the first things drivers notice about the 2001 Infiniti QX4 is its powerful V-6 engine. While Infiniti offers just one trim model of the QX4, you get some options. You can add on the optional sports package for a rear limited-slip differential, or save some money by buying a model with two-wheel drive.
Engines: 3.5-liter V-6
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Infiniti QX4
The big addition to the Infiniti QX4 for 2001 comes in the form of a new engine; the 3.5-liter, 24-valve V-6, which makes this SUV competitive from a power perspective with any comparable SUV in its class. Other features new with the 2001 Infiniti QX4 include an optional navigation system and entertainment system, an updated interior and exterior, standard xenon headlights, and alloy wheels.
The new, more stylish 2001 Infiniti QX4 features a sturdy mono-frame construction with 16-inch alloy wheels, skid plates, a roof rack, painted bumpers, and step running boards. Other features include privacy glass, a manual flip-up liftgate window, and a rear liftgate door.
Plenty of upscale features come on the 2001 Infiniti QX4 interior for drivers and passengers to enjoy, including interior air filtration, a leather interior with a leather steering wheel and shift knob trim, bucket front seats with adjustable lumbar support for the driver’s seat, and double illuminating vanity mirrors. The driver and passengers easily adjust seats for comfort with a four-way adjustable power passenger seat and an eight-way adjustable power driver’s seat. Other features include a classic Infinity analog clock on the dashboard and an option for an entertainment center with a video player and game system compatibility connected to a fold-down LCD screen.
Performance & Handling
This mighty truck offers a 3.5-liter V-6 that generates 240 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, with rear or all-wheel drive and a four-speed automatic transmission. This results in a quality, smooth ride with responsive acceleration and handling, especially when you consider the five-link coil beam rear axle suspension and speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion-steering.
Drivers love the automatic four-wheel-drive system that comes with the 2001 Infiniti QX4, adjustable with the All-Mode four-wheel-drive control knob. Combined with the rear limited-slip differential, drivers enjoy almost unparalleled traction control. The 2001 Infiniti QX4 also features a front independent suspension to go with its five-link coil beam rear axle suspension.
The 2001 Infiniti QX4 has some great safety features, including front head and dual front side-mounted airbags, four-wheel ABS, an engine immobilizer, ventilated front disc and rear drum brakes, front and rear headrests, front seat belt pretensioners, electronic brakeforce distribution, child seat anchors, and rear-door child safety locks.
